So, at the moment, I am rather fascinated by….

1. 1940’s Dresses.

There’s something beautiful and strong and simple and interesting about the fashion of the 1940’s… perhaps because of World War II and the change between the style during the war and the New Look that came after…

Or maybe I just love the chick’s hat on this pattern cover.

2. Steampunk Corsets

I’m not into steampunk literature or anything… but I really like these corsets… Not that I would wear them anywhere, but they just look neat.

3. 1950’s Pulp Sci-Fi

Um… Yeah… so there’s something about buxom blonds being stolen by aliens on strange planets that amuses me. This shouldn’t shock anyone.


I don’t have a TV at the moment, so I’ve been watching a lot of HULU and, well, now I have the biggest crushes on about half the characters in this stupid TV show, GRIMM… It’s like CSI: Portland meets… Twlight Zone meets… I don’t even know what.

Yeah, I love it.

5. The Art of Aubrey Beardsley

So, I’ve been on this Aubrey Beardsley kick for a few weeks, ever since I came across an original copy of Yellow Book with the plates intact.

P.S. Not all of Beardsley’s stuff is safe for work… he had a thing for men with abnormally large… well… this is a family blog, so I won’t get into it… just be a little careful where you image search him.

Anyway, that’s what I’ve been into on the web lately. Some of this stuff might find its way into a paper doll or two.


  1. Grimm is fantastic! And you don’t feel guilty about liking it like with True Blood. (For me I think the best thing about True Blood are all the great one liners, and the way every show ends with an expletive.) But Grimm is much less ridiculous, and very cool. Plus it’s got Monroe, who is just awesome.
